The end of the subject line is just to indicate that after the 4th of
February I'll go ahead and make these changes, unless there's

I've got some changes I want to make to the entry page for community
docs. I started by trying to find out whether a specific piece of
software is documented, or where to add it and found a few things I'd
like to improve along the way. This is by no means my ideal solution -
but if we can agree it's better, then we're moving in the right

So, the page is https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ and my edits are as follows:

On https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ in the section "After you've
installed Ubuntu"

== Adding and using Software ==
 * [:SoftwareManagement:Installing Software] - Finding, installing,
and updating software.
 * [:RestrictedFormats:Multimedia Playback] - Playing MP3, DVD and
other popular sound and video formats.
 * [:Multimedia:Multimedia Editing] - Playing and editing sound and video.
 * ["Games"] - A list of games for Ubuntu.
 * [:Programming] - Creating software.
 * [:SoftwareFromOtherOperatingSystems:Running non-Linux Software] -
Running other operating systems and their software (including Windows
and Windows apps) in Ubuntu.

== Connectivity ==
 * [:InternetAndNetworking:Internet & Networking] - Connecting to the
Internet as well as your home or office network.
 * [:Servers] - Setting up web servers, file servers, and more.

== Customising Ubuntu ==
 * [:UbuntuEyeCandy:Eye Candy] - Making your computer look and work cooler.
 * [:CorporateUbuntu:Business Environment] - Configuring Ubuntu for
use in business environments.

And what about these ones??? Not only is 'Accessibility' a dead link,
but there's nothing on the wiki about accessibility, I want to remove
that one. And 'Distributed Computing' - interesting yes, but first
page material? Should be under 'Software > Internet and Networking >
Distributed Computing' ... but we haven't got that far yet.
 * [:Accessibility/doc/Guide:Accessibility] - Making Ubuntu easier to
use for those with physical or visual challenges.
 * [:DistributedComputing:Distributed Computing] - Using your
computer's spare resources to help save the world.

Comments welcome, constructive criticism too (from those who work on
the wiki and have some understanding of non-nerd users and usability
